Challenge Week 7

Week 7 is upon us!  What an exciting journey this has been so far.  It's so much fun as I travel around the country this summer and find people who are completing the #SummerLS with us!  To see this movement of teachers, passionate about learning, is such a great feeling!

I know many of you are behind a challenge or two, so this week is going to be a fairly easy week to give you a little time to catch up, but also still give you a challenge!

Part 1:

About a year ago I learned about this "walkie-talkie" kind of app called Voxer.  It took me quite a while to understand the value or how to really use it, but now I'm addicted to it!

My good friend, Ben Gilpin, has made a quick TouchCast video to explain Voxer a little more with some ideas on how you can use it!  You can find that video HERE.

So your challenge this week is download Voxer and start a conversation with someone in your PLN.  Ben shared his Voxer contact information in the video and mine is tneslo811.  And HERE is an entire list of people in education on Voxer.

Once you've completed this challenge fill out the Google Form HERE.

Part 2 (optional):

Last week's challenge included learning about MakerSpaces.  You may have heard a book mentioned called "Invent to Learn".  Well there is now going to be a weekly book study/twitter chat that will be happening (#itlchat)!  It's a great opportunity to connect with and learn from others.  Emily Swenson and Michael Medvinsky are leading it and you can find more information HERE.

If you participate in the chat and read the book please fill out this Google Form HERE

Here's to another great week of learning!
